About this school

We have small class sizes and a strong, dedicated faculty. All students get individual attention. We maintain a strong working relation with parents, and take part in community outreach activities. We have strong arts courses that include photography, design, and multi-media, and students take guitar as part of the UA Lead Guitar program. Social studies classes are taught through film. Science classes are hands-on with plants, soils, and water conservation. Students conquer math anxiety.
